New Outer Stylie Vid

Outer Stylie- “Into Being” from Cobalt Jefferson on Vimeo.

Outer Stylie dropped a bomb with their opening jam, the almost 10-minute “Into Being.” This vido would have been presented in its entirety however the jam lasted so long we ran out of batteries in our camera. Fear not though funk fans, the full audio can be found by clicking on their Sweet Baby Lou page in the left hand column. For now enjoy the boy’s miles of metal psychedelia.

New SBL Skits

For all you Funkheads out there eagerly awaiting our next show, it’s our pleasure to announce that we will not be announcing it at this time. But what we do have for you is the latest round of skits from our sickness themed show. Our latest forays into skits/fake commercials have found Sweet Baby Lou forming advertising partners with shady kids camps in Mexico, Saliva salespeople and of course the illustrious pastime that is goat racing.

Outer Stylie Bring the Sickness

The theme for Wednesday’s show was Sweet Baby Lou in Critical Condition and while we may have been in the hospital it was Outer Stylie that brought the sickness.

For their second Sweet Baby Lou session the boys, a one time trio, returned as a four piece this time adding rhythm guitarist John Duffy and new drummer Kyle Heon. The new members have been playing with the band’s founders Nate Martel (Guitar, vocals) and Tom Schack (bass) for almost nine months in their current incarnation and are about to release their first self titled album, due later this year.

Despite the difference in members, Outer Stylie retained their crown as Sweet Baby Lou’s loudest band, and though they didn’t pass their record for longest song (“Triphecta of the Moon” clocked in at 19 minutes) they did come close with their spiraling psychedelic jam “Into Being.” As guitarist Nate Martel said before ripping into this track “we want to take you there.” You should let them.

Tune in Tonight! 2/24 from 12-2AM!

Sweet Baby Lou has done it again. Despite the doctor’s warnings that his two black lungs, and his myriad of both sexually and non-sexually transmitted diseases it seems that Sweet Baby Lou is “In Critical Condition,” and it could be a long night.

The Dr.’s orders? 200 cc’s of pure rock and roll and tonight we need your help to deliver. Tonight’s theme is “In Critical Condition” with all songs being about all things medical from hospitals, to broken to bones, to medication.

Tonight’s surgeon generals? Outer Stylie, local hard rockers who hold the Sweet Baby Lou superlative for “loudest band.” I just hope its enough to keep Sweet Baby Lou out of that coma. So tune in, keep it funky. Accepting calls for support.
